San Buenaventura SB

State Beach

Please Note:  For the current status of this park, please call (805) 968-1033.

Beach condition advisory: This past winter, storms and high waves eroded much of the sand on the beach at this park, exposing cobble rocks, particularly south of the pier. The beach area with the most sand is next to the main day-use parking lot.

This beach features swimming, surfing and picnicking. The beach has two miles of sandy beach, sand dunes, picnic sites, a parking lot, a snack bar and a beach-equipment rental shop. Bike trails connect other nearby beaches. The beach is the site for a number of special events, such as the triathlons, and volleyball tournaments. A 1,700-foot pier has a snack bar, restaurant and bait shop.

The beach is in the city of Ventura. The entrance is on San Pedro Street off Highway 101.
